The Commission of the European Union (EU) has published an updated list of standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the essential requirements of its directive relating to electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (2006/95/EC).
The Directive defines ‘electrical equipment’ as any device designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current, and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current.
Exemptions to the provisions of the Directive are identified in Annex II, and include electrical equipment for radiology and medical purposes, plug and socket outlets for domestic use, electrical equipment used in explosive atmospheres, and certain other types of specialized electrical equipment.
The updated list of standards that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the Directive was published on March 19th, in the Official Journal of the European Union, and replaces all previously published standards lists.
